Crystal Reports 2008 on Windows Server 2008


I'm trying to get a C# ASP.Net application to work. I got the trial version, thinking that that may be the cause of my issues. Ok, here's my process: On my development machine I've installed Crystal Reports 2008, created the report and a .aspx page to go along with it, with a Crystal Reports Viewer control. It works on my machine perfectly. So now it needs to go to production. I've installed Crystal Reports 2008, the runtime for CR2008 and a runtime for Visual Studio 2008 with CR2008 Basic. When I try to view the page on the server from my machine it gives me a "Load Report Failed" error. What am I missing? Someone please just give me a simple answer. I don't care about techincalities. Just get this ridiculous product to work. I've been trying to figure this out for about a month and 2000+ people are depending on it.

P.S. The Windows Server 2008 version we have is the basic one that isn't really meant for running applications. Is that a problem?

And if this continues to fail miserably, does Microsoft Reporting Services work?
